Keyboard Shortcuts: PowerPoint Object Editing

Ctrl+G – If you want to work with objects as a group, elect them all and use Ctrl+G. You may select them individually with Ctrl+Click or draw a box around them.

Ctrl+Shift+G – Sometimes you can work with grouped items individually by selecting the group and then selecting the object. Other times it’s good to break things up again. Ctrl+Shift+G does the trick.

Ctrl+Shift+ – Right-clicking can be problematic in PowerPoint. You get that Move/Copy pop-up instead of the right-click menu. To send an object to the very back or very front, use these shortcuts: Ctrl+ (send to front).
